Make Sure Your Spring Cleaning Includes Indoor Air Quality and Duct Cleaning in Hamilton, Ontario
After what felt like the longest year and then the longest winter season on record, we are all ready for spring!
We are especially craving the warmth, the sunshine, and the chance to feel safe seeing friends and family with the greater protection of gathering outdoors.
But even as our brief warm season slowly arrives, it brings with it the usual host of indoor air quality issues, including pollen, dust, mould and mildew.
Add to it that Ontario, Canada appears to be experiencing the most severe outbreak of COVID cases since the pandemic began. This year's spring cleaning has an urgency we have never felt before!
In this timely post, learn CleanAir Solution’s recommendations for upgrading your air quality and purity to support staying healthy as the threat level rises once again.
Duct Cleaning in Hamilton Is An Unsung Indoor Air Quality Hero
Over the last year, our experienced and knowledgeable service technicians have had more conversations about indoor air quality than at any time since we opened our doors.
We are aware of how closely our health is linked to the air we breathe. But starting the process of deciding what to do about your indoor air quality concerns can feel like a vertical learning curve.
This is especially true with so many products and services on the market, many of which feel somewhat faddish or gimmicky rather than tried and true.
Here at CleanAir Solutions, all the services and products we provide and recommend are well known and trusted throughout the industry.
This is why we always tell our customers to start with our superior air duct cleaning. How does duct cleaning work? Well, indoor air duct cleaning is literally the unsung hero of the air quality industry.
Why? Imagine right now that you had never learned how to dust. So every day, day after day, your floors, your countertops, your shelves and furniture are constantly accumulating dust.
A year of this would be bad enough. But imagine if you went 10 or 20 years without dusting, sweeping, vacuuming or cleaning! What do you think your home would look like?
This is exactly what is going on inside your ducts.
But because you can't easily see inside the duct system, you don't know it. You don't realize how thick the dust and debris has gotten and how much of it gets pushed out through the air registers every time your HVAC system cycles on again.
Most of our air duct cleaning customers are still having their ducts serviced for the first time ever. They are often shocked by two things
1. How dirty the inside of their ducts look (we use a tiny camera to show them before we start the cleaning).
2. How clean the air feels and smells as soon as we finish the duct cleaning service.
If you wonder why you or someone in your family may suffer from chronic allergies, asthma, itchy eyes or skin, sniffly nose, headache, mental fogginess and similar symptoms, it could be that your dirty ducts are to blame.
NOTE: We also recommend scheduling our professional dryer vent cleaning on the same day as your superior air duct cleaning. This traps the maximum contaminants in a single service call and also reduces fire risk from operating your clothes dryer.
How Much Is Duct Cleaning?
The average cost of duct cleaning in Hamilton depend on the size of the job. If you have a large house with extensive duct work, this job could take quite long. Thankfully, at CleanAir Solutions, we offer FREE, No Obligation quotes BEFORE we get started.

Your Air Purifier and Filtration Are Indoor Air Quality Game Changers
Have you ever wondered how to test air quality within your home? At CleanAir Solutions in Hamilton, we have the tools, equipment and know-how to test air quality properly. Learn more on how to test air quality in your home HERE.
Once you have had your superior air duct cleaning and your dryer vent cleaning, sanitized and deodorized, this is when you want to move ahead to implement more permanent indoor air quality safeguards.
Otherwise, the most you will accomplish with other air quality upgrades is to keep moving the contaminants in your space around.
But once you have thoroughly cleaned, deodorized and sanitized your whole air duct system and dryer vent, your home has essentially been reset to zero. In the air ducts, your home is brand new!
This is when you want to start adding enhanced indoor air quality cleaners to maintain clean indoor air and guard against future airborne pathogens and toxins.
Here again, today there is an ever-wider variety of indoor air quality aids that makes it seem like the moment you actually commit to one, it will be out of date the next day.
This is not the case with the two time-tested, research-backed solutions we are about to recommend to you here. Both of these solutions can go the distance and then some to keep your indoor air safe and clean.
Ultraviolet Air Purifier
Ultraviolet light has gotten a bad rap over the last several decades and doctors regularly warn us to avoid it.
But UV light is still the most powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial treatment on the planet.
Air treated with short wave concentrated UV light is air free from pathogens, including viral and bacterial and fungal matter, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mould and mildew, volatile organic compounds and much more.
Both portable and central UV air purifier systems are available.
What is a HEPA Filter? HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air. A HEPA filter is the gold standard in air filtration and has been since it was invented during World War II.
Frontline healthcare workers and workers who have interaction with the general public favour HEPA face masks for precisely this reason. This is also why HEPA air filter is now used in all hospital floors where COVID patients are being treated.
When a HEPA filter system is used inside the home, it can filter out airborne particulates to an incredibly tiny size.
